An exponent of itself
Like most of the above ground buildings, the Kaue (dry room) comes from the drafting table of the architects Fritz Schupp and Martin Kremmer, who set their unmistakable mark on numerous industrial buildings in the 20s through the 60s of the last century.
Typical are the clothing baskets hanging under the ceiling. They convey an impression of the activity which prevailed here during the last golden days of Rammelsberg mining.
There are four separate dry rooms at the Rammelsberg:
The mine foremenâ€™s and disabled dry room, which today serve as cloakroom and helmet room--because all underground tours begin here and in the mines helmets are required gear.The youth dry room together with the former foremenâ€™s offices directly adjacent the wage hall are used for changing exhibits.The crew washhouse is used occasionally for exhibits and other events. Mainly it impresses through its special spatial feel: it is truly an exponent of itself, where the guests of the Museum and Visitorsâ€™ Mine Works can, while waiting for their tours to begin, feel taken back in time to when hundreds of miners and craftsmen completed the transition from work life to private life by changing their clothes.A side room of the crew washhouse houses two scale models on which the mine guides share valuable information with the visitors before their entrance into the mines.
